    2001 SLH hood Recall

    Does anyone know if Polaris will replace a hood and hinge on a ski that didn't have the recall service completed? The hinge on my 01 broke, and the hood came off at speed on land, causing damage.

    That's pretty much what I figured. Both partzilla or bike bandit list a seat still available for my 96 SLX, but the hood and hinge are both listed as NLA.

    You may be able to find good used replacements for the hinge and hood.

    There is a recall/service bulletin and cable safety upgrade issued for all Polaris models with the plastic hood hinge.



    Sometimes the recall kit appears on ebay or the GH Classifieds, but you can create your own using a strong SS wire cable plus large washers and bolts through the hood.

    Is that the same hinge as on a 2001 Pro 1200? If so, I have one that I can sell you and you are real close to me.

    Man, I wish I would have seen this earlier. I ended up ordering a hinge off eBay. Now if you have a hood, I am still in the market. Haha.

    You might want to buy another hood hinge as a spare.

    These hinges are nearly twenty years old now, and the recall safety cable kit does not reduce the stresss on the plastic hinge. The cable simply keeps the hood from hitting you in the face at speed.
